Now on my must have list: A Fuel Cell Motorcycle for $6000.
From the article:
ENV makes no more noise than a home computer and emits only heat and water. Users have compared riding the nearly silent motorbike to skiing, sailing, surfing, and glider flying. "If you go for a ride in the countryside, as you ride through it, you can smell the countryside, hear the birds singing, and you are not disturbing nature," Eggleston said. "Birds will not fly out of the way because they are terrified of the noise."
Intelligent Energy plans to sell the motorbike for between U.S. $6,000 and $8,000. The company believes the ENV will appeal to both urban commuters and recreational riders.....
Intelligent Energy is currently developing devices called reformers that extract hydrogen from biodiesel fuels and ethanol for around U.S. $1,500 and could produce enough hydrogen to fill up the ENV for about 25 cents per tank, while contributing no more atmospheric emissions than plant-based raw materials of biodiesel or ethanol would emit if left to rot on the ground. [Note from Andrew: Of course, this doesn't account for the costs and emissions related to refining the biodiesel or ethanol]
"So you can get on the ENV motorbike and, for a quarter, do one hundred miles of silent, emissions-free biking," Eggleston said. "That to me is a compelling thing."
